Why I ride: Am I a cyclist? No...
Have I stepped foot into a spin class in over 10 years? No...
But I AM a cancer survivor devoted to a WORLD WITHOUT CANCER and will show up on the 24th and do my part in supporting the live-saving research that PTC funds.

Right after my 34th birthday, I was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer. Thankfully I had amazing medical care through Siteman Cancer Center which is why I am here today. At the time, my husband of 3 years, Jeff, one year old son, Christian, and family was coping with an absolute nightmare. Our future looked so uncertain and we had to take things one day at a time. Today, I am 9 years out and in addition to the amazing men who were already in my world, I am now blessed with a second son, Jacob Russell. I have many to thank - my family, God and the doctors and team at Siteman who closely managed my disease for almost a decade.

In 2010, I was fortunate enough to work on the inaugural PTC event as the Interim Executive Director. I can not say enough great things about Pedal's founder, Bill Koman and his passion for funding cancer research. Pedal the Cause has raised almost $16 million and has funded 92 local cancer research projects through the Children's Discovery Institute at St. Louis Children's Hospital and the Cancer Frontier Fund, an initiative of Barnes-Jewish Hospital that benefits the Siteman Cancer Center. Thanks to sponsors that cover the overhead, every penny raised by this annual event goes to cancer research.

"Giving is full of unintended blessings that are often repaid many times over." This is one of the last things I read on my brave friend Beth's blog before she passed this year after her long battle with metastatic breast cancer. Please help me in my effort to raise money for Pedal the Cause by making a donation. 100% of your donation will go directly towards cancer research. There is no better investment. Your giving today could result in many blessings for yourself and loved ones in the years to come.

Thanks for reading my story and your support!
XOXO,
Angela
